PSE Competencies addressed by this training course


List the various steps in the analysis/simulation process.


Define the meaning of degree of freedom.


List the nodal degrees of freedom and the associated force actions for common beam, 2D solid, 2D axisymmetric, 3D solid and shell elements, for the Displacement FEM.


Describe the sources of error inherent in finite element analysis, in general terms.


Discuss checks that may be used post-solution to check for the presence of inaccuracy.


Explain the meaning of convergence, including h and p types.


Discuss the need for a consistent set of units in any analysis and illustrate possible pitfalls.


Explain why element distortion generally results in poorer results.


Discuss the term flying structure or insufficiently constrained structure.


Discuss the terms Validation and Verification and highlight their importance.


Employ an analysis system for the determination of stresses and strains in small displacement, linear elastic problems.


Demonstrate effective use of available results presentation facilities.


Illustrate the approximate nature of finite element analysis, through examples chosen from your industry sector.


Illustrate the various steps in the Displacement Finite Element Method from assumed displacement polynomial to determination of stresses.


Employ symmetric boundary conditions effectively.


Illustrate various physical situations which will result in a Stress Singularity and explain why it is not appropriate to use finite element results at such locations directly.


Employ a range of post-solution checks to determine the integrity of FEA results.


Analyse the results from small displacement, linear static analyses and determine whether they satisfy inherent assumptions.


Compare the results from small displacement, linear elastic analyses with allowable values and comment on findings.


Prepare an analysis specification, including modelling strategy, highlighting any assumptions relating to geometry, loads, boundary conditions and material properties.


Select an appropriate idealisation for a component / structure, which is consistent with the objectives of the analyses.
